For Trinity Jude Sencindiver. Romances by Cathy Maxwell. Welcome to the world! Contents. Chapter One. Ian Campion was bloody tired of being poor. Making his way through the foul and narrow streets of the rookery known as the Holy Land for the Irish inhabitants who lived one on top of another there in unrelenting poverty, he wondered how he could have ever believed he could create a better life for his family here than the one they’d had in Ireland.

As the title of Maxwell's newest Regency-era romance (following The Lady Is Tempted) accurately proclaims, this spirited and tender yarn is a joyride that careens from adventure to adventure.

The Runaway Heiress

Like many a Regency miss, Lyssa Harrell longs for love, but knows her duty lies in marriage. Still, when her father promises her hand to a dissolute but well-connected lord, she does the unthinkable ... she flees to Scotland. Not to Gretna Green, but to her family -- and to the castle where her mother once had been so happy. In this romantic land she will discover her heart's desire.

A Man Seeking His Fortune

But she doesn't count on Ian Campion. The ruggedly handsome man has his orders: fetch the runaway daughter home! Ian has a price on his head and a dire need for the reward Lyssa's father offers. Tracking Lyssa down is easy enough, convincing her to return is difficult ... and not seducing her is impossible.

And Their Scandalous Adventures

Soon, Lyssa is on the adventure of a lifetime. She has to sleep in the great outdoors, and flee from mysterious attempts on her life. She knows she's ruined in the eyes of society, but she is willing to face true ruin -- and risk everything for the unimaginable passion she finds in Ian's strong arms. And when they return to civilization, the two must confront the most perilous adventure of all ... admitting their unanticipated love.

I chose this rating because I thought the book was excellent. The historical data, the intrigue, the great character personalities and of coarse the romance, all together made this a great read that I had hard time putting down.

Cathy Maxwell once again took me on a romantic adventure from the first page to the last. This book was fun and moved along very nicely. Also, her two main characters seemed so mismatched in the beginning - but you feel yourself falling in love with them as you turn each page. Loved it and will continue to be a Cathy Maxwell fan!

Adventures of a Scottish Heiress is a pleasant adventure tale, featuring Maxwell's trademark exuberance and bright optimism.

Rather than marry the pompous, frigid older man her father has chosen, heiress Lyssa Harrell runs away from London, heading for her deceased mother's family seat in the Scottish Highlands. Although Lyssa's family is wealthy, their money comes from trade, and Lyssa has always felt like an outsider in snobbish English society. She hopes to find herself by returning to her roots.

Irishman Ian Campion is desperate to provide for his widowed sisters and their children. Feeling guilty because a dark event in his past caused the loss of his family's property and later the death of his brothers-in-law, Ian is more than happy to accept the offer of Lyssa's father: find Lyssa and bring her back to London. An outcast with a price on his head, Ian must gain the freedom that only this lucrative job can provide.

But Ian had not anticipated how stubborn the fiery Lyssa would be nor that as soon as he found her, they would have to flee mysterious blackguards intent on murdering Lyssa. As Lyssa and Ian hurry away from the assassins and toward Lyssa's Scottish relatives, they have a number of exciting adventures. And even though they both know that they can never be together, Lyssa and Ian fall in love.

What awaits them in Scotland is the last thing they would have expected, and when they escape near death and finally return to London, it seems that despite their love, they will be separated forever. Or will they?

Maxwell's characters are very likeable and realistic. Her plot is exciting, full of interesting twists and turns. Adventures of a Scottish Heiress is a charming tale that historical romance fans will enjoy.

London and Scotland in the year 1816 is where this very lively tale by Cathy Maxwell takes place. It tells the story of Ian Campion, an Irishman who supports his two widowed sisters, nephews, and niece by whatever means he can, lately by bare fisted fighting for money. He is approached by one of the wealthiest men in England, Dunmore �Pirate� Harrell with an offer he cannot refuse, namely to find his daughter Lyssa, whom he thinks has been kidnapped, even though no ransom has been requested. After being introduced to Viscount Gorssett, the man Dunmore had betrothed Alyssa to, Ian believes she ran away from home to elude her snobbish fiancé.
Lyssa is a rather spunky lead character, who has effected her own escape by hiring a family of �gypsies� to escort her to Scotland, and the ancestral home of her deceased mother. Ian catches up with Lyssa, and her band of �gypsies� who he quickly routs out for the imposters that they are, but before he can return with her, ruffians attempt an ambush kill her. During Ian and Lyssa�s flight, they overhear the leader speaking and know that the road back to London will be watched so, Ian agrees to travel in the opposite direction of the road to London and complete her trip to bring her to Scotland. Along the way, the pampered wealthy heiress learns a few lessons of survival, human dignity and love, from the Irishman sent to bring her home.
This delightful Regency romance has two very likeable lead characters, who discover true love along the way. The chase through the countryside was not without the authors characteristic enjoyable dialog and sensual awakenings to new love. Toss in a little excitement of the chase, suspenseful escapes and fights and you have a wonderfully enjoyable read for a rainy afternoon! This has it all and I most definitely recommend this for fans of this genre.
